Wonderful Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am writing this review while I am down here because I feel a need to let families know that this place is outstanding! The home is very clean and it has everything in it! Very organized. We feel at home here. The ocean is a short walk across the street and the sound is behind us where we have been fishing. I like to run in the mornings and it just so happens that right outside on the road is a bike path! We ordered linens through Seaside Linens and they were delivered on time and there were plenty of towels to get us through the week. We shopped at Food Lion and Walmart market place. Two doors down there is a farmers market that sets up daily. It was nice just to walk over and get what you want. It's just beach life down here! Everyone is nice and laid back! This is a vacation to relax and just lay back and enjoy nature. It's not a run around eat out type of vacation. Last if all the owner was a pleasure to work with! Very nice and helpful! We are for sure coming back to re rent this lovely place!!

My family and I had a wonderful, relaxing vacation. This townhouse was perfectly situated as we had a short walk to the beach and enjoyed the community pool by ourselves for the most part.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to C-Shell for over 12 years. We have said that this is our home away from home. The owner has been very helpful in answering any questions we might have had. The townhouse is just steps from the ocean and pool. The property has always been neat, clean, and well maintained when we have arrived. The home is beautifully decorated and has a full complete kitchen. We have recommended this property to our friends and relatives. Wilmington is about 25 miles from Topsail, and we usually go there at least once while we are at the beach. We would recommend Wilmington for serious shoppers, There are small quaint shops on Topsail which deserve a look. There is a sunset cruise on the sound side which is spectactular, a turtle hospital, and other neat things to discover. Make sure you bring your cameras for beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The time we have spent at this home has been very relaxing, comforting, and peaceful. Thanks to the owners for all the ways that they try to make your visit a pleasant experience.
